Hi guys,

I've experienced similarly unimpressive results with Premiere cs5.5 on my 3,1 Mac Pro.

My specs:
2x3.0Ghz (8 core)
10 gigs RAM
7200rpm HDDs
Running Lion

I don't have a supported card (nVidia 8800GT) but Adobe claims that the GPU doesn't work on playing back footage anyways, only in accelerating effects.

I'm a switcher from FCP to the CS5.5 suite. So far, compared to my less powerful PC which runs the CS4 suite, CS5.5 is SLOWER on the Mac. I can't understand this, maybe it's a Lion issue?

I edit a lot of DSLR media, plays back okay, but is painfully laggy when scrubbing the CTI (playhead)over multiple clips. Even Prores media is not playing back as smoothly as it did in FCP, which was a 32-bit application!

I hope things improve on the Mac side of CS5.5.

PS: I have installed the 5.5.1 update, but scrubbing and adjusting clip-effects are PAINFULLY slow still.
